Coffy was a pretty good success in 1973; the following year came a sequel, Foxy Brown. We’ve got Jack Hill as the returning writer and director and in our star role it is once again Pam Grier. Because the studio was afraid of being in the sequel business in the time it was made this isn’t ‘Coffy 2′, the names and title are different. But we’ve got the same dope pusher killing woman we all love back for some more revenge. This time around her own brother has her boyfriend killed for ratting out some bad dudes. So Foxy goes on her focused frenzy of revenge out to take down as many dealers as possible. While I do like Coffy more, Foxy Brown is not a movie to be missed. It’s got that same down and dirty mean streak that you’d associate with these movies and rates as ones of the best in the genre.
